The EOS M10 is an interchangeable lens camera that uses the Canon EF-Mlens mount. The EOS M10 is an entry-level model which lacks the large rubber grip, multiple control dials, and hot shoeflash that can be found on the larger and more expensive Canon EOS M3.
The EOS M10 uses the same 18MP APS-C sensor as the older Canon EOS M2, which was not sold in the United States. The EOS M10 also uses the EOS M2's Hybrid CMOS AF II autofocus system, instead of the EOS M3's quicker Hybrid CMOS AF III system. However, unlike the EOS M2, the EOS M10 features the same DIGIC 6image processor as the newer EOS M3.
The EOS M10 has a 180-degree flip-up LCD viewscreen, a built-in pop-up flash, and integrated Wi-Fi and NFC enabling control of the camera via a smartphone app.
In its initial press release announcing the camera, Canon revealed that the camera would be sold in a kit including the EOS M10 and an EF-M 15-45mm f/3.5-6.3 IS STM zoom lens at a retail price of $599.99. As of October 2015, the camera is not sold separately and can only be bought in a kit with lens included.
